Lord of Secrets

Breanna Teintze

6 Reviews

Rated 0

The Empty Gods, Fantasy

With the humour of V.E. Schwab, the scale of Trudi Canavan and the deftness of Naomi Novik, LORD OF SECRETS is a heartwarming fantasy novel about saving the people you love without destroying the world (or yourself) in the process.

'I loved it . . . A perfect mix of traditional and new' Charlie N. Holmberg, author of The Paper Magician

Magic is poison. Secrets are power. Death is . . . complicated.

Outlaw wizard Corcoran Gray has enough problems. He's friendless, penniless and on the run from the tyrannical Mages' Guild - and with the search for his imprisoned grandfather looking hopeless, his situation can't get much worse.

So when a fugitive drops into his lap - literally - and gets them both arrested, it's the last straw - until Gray realises that runaway slave Brix could be the key to his grandfather's release. All he has to do is break out of prison, break into an ancient underground temple and avoid killing himself with his own magic in the process.

In theory, it's simple enough. But as secrets unfold and loyalties shift, Gray discovers something with the power to change the nature of life and death itself.

Now Gray must find a way to protect the people he loves, but it could cost him everything, even his soul . . .

With the humour of V.E. Schwab, the scale of Trudi Canavan and the deftness of Naomi Novik, Lord of Secrets is a heartwarming fantasy novel about saving the people you love without destroying the world (or yourself).

'A fast-paced necromantic adventure' Emily Tesh, author of Silver in the Wood

Praise for Lord of Secrets

  • I loved it! It surprised me many times . . . Gray is relatable, sympathetic, and wholly likeable, and the rest of the cast was endearing. And the magic! It was a perfect mix of traditional and new. A fascinating take, really. - Charlie N. Holmberg, author of The Paper Magician

  • Lord of Secrets is a fast-paced necromantic adventure. The characters are sharp, the dialogue is funny - and wow, Teintze can really write a monster! From the sadistic priest to the power-crazed wizard, from the delicate horrifying brilliance of her undead creations to the lurking, dreadful, beautiful monster at the heart of an ancient buried temple, I was alarmed and delighted at every turn - Emily Tesh, author of Silver in the Wood

  • Lord of Secrets is a delightful necromantic romp through a dark and complex world with magic as boundless as it is painful, terrifying undead monstrosities, and secrets layered upon secrets which are so craftfully peeled away just in time for a bone-rattling, conclusion that all I want is the next book, NOW - K. A. Doore, author of The Perfect Assassin

  • In a word: great! . . . A dazzling debut! - Life Has a Funny Way

  • 5 out of 5 - Dyslexic Reader

  • A clever, interesting fantasy with complex characters and I would recommend this as a good read - Storgy
